We currently publish two issues of the Newsletter a year, in the Summer and Autumn. We have previously covered a range of topics such as storytelling, poetry and how the internet is changing reading habits, in addition to interviews with many of our favourite authors.

We regularly include advice for the Book Groups on running events and getting involved in their local community, as well as keeping our members up to date with our national projects, what’s going on in other groups, and exciting new books.

If you have an idea for an article, or would like to share any news or pictures then please email

We also produce UpdaTED, a regular mailing for all our members, which is intended to supplement the newsletter. Members and groups are invited to contribute to the content of future issues. Click below for an example.

All newsletters and UpdaTED briefings are in pdf format. To view them you may need Adobe Acrobat.
